Sexy man Boris Kodjoe spoke bluntly on twitter over the weekend. He chose to speak on a touchy subject called “weight”. Of course many of the bigger women were not too happy with Boris’ bluntness. Boris stated that people needed to become more health conscious and take better care of themselves. The drama started with one tweet. He tweeted: “Like a baby. Had nightmares though about 300 pound women in thongs gnawing on chicken wings while grinding on me. Scary. Gotta Love North Carolina.”
A few of his followers asked if he had problems with bigger women. Of course Boris said that he loved all types of women but that he and his wife were all about good health. Boris decided to educate his followers on obesity in the African American community:
“Ok, people. Just to make it clear. I love all women! I love them tall and short, big and small, dark and light, short hair and long hair. You all know [Nicole] and I are all about health. And we as a community have to be more conscious of our health. The numbers are shocking. I love ‘thickness’. And I love a woman who loves herself. And loving yourself is being healthy. Here some # from the US Dept. for minority health: 4 out of 5 African-American women are overweight or obese! Obesity related diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer (only 5 types of cancer are hereditary) are the leading cause of death. It’s not about conforming to these ridiculous ‘skinny’ beauty standards in the media, it’s about being healthy so your kids can be healthy.”
High blood pressure and Type II diabetes are only 30% from genes and 70% from environmental input, aka bad diet and no exercise[…]By popular demand, a new slogan: SEXY STACKED GODDESS No weight differentiation, BMI, or label needed. It stands for healthy and confident. “
Boris continued to tweet none legitimate fat excuses he’s heard from people refusing to lose weight:and also started the trending topic ‘#FATEXCUSES’ which were reasons people refused to lose weight.
Fat Excuse – ‘DON’T HAVE TIME TO EXCERCISE‘ If u have time 2 watch ‘Keeping up With the Kardashians’ u hv time 2 do jumping-jacks n crunches
Fat Excuse-’IT’S SO BORING‘ Well, put your iPod on and do the Dougie, work out with your man, or take a fun class
Fat Excuse -’I HAVE NO MONEY FOR A GYM’ Go in the park and walk, bike, walk stairs, do it in your bedroom, do the Boogie…again
Fat Excuse-’MEN LIKE THICK GIRLS’ There’s a difference between a healthy and sexy stacked goddess and an unhealthy obese one
Fat Excuse -’I LIKE FRIED FOODS’ ok, portion control is key. You don’t have to be a vegan, just take it easy on too much fried and processed foods
To finish off his educational session, Boris made a point to throw in Rihanna’s name to prove that our culture is more obsessed with celebrities than they are the real issues that affect our community.
I don’t butter up. I challenge people and I want to be challenged. I want us to be healthier, happier, more successful with real aspirations. Our kids’ education sucks, our health is poor, our men are in jail, and we are broke, so let’s not talk about Rhianna’s hair color ok?
Gotcha! see, that’s all we care about. Sad. I’m done for today. Just everyone please take some responsibility for yourselves. Let’s all be better.
I agree with everything he said except that the American Public is more concerned with celebrities than they are actual issues. Seeing as to how I write a lot of articles, some about celebrities and some about everyday issues I see that people are actually concerned with real life issues than they are celebrities. My featured posts which are about every life issues that are written from scratch by me get shared on facebook 80% more than one of my celebrity posts.. I don’t know if this is due to me having more conscious fans or what not.. I was surprised by this. So it’s safe to say not everyone is walking around sleeping and only concerned with celebrities.
